Funny how despite all the pushing and hatred towards Trump, democrats barely took the house and still lost the senate. Half the country is perfectly fine with Trump. The rest are just missinformed radicals trying to destroy the good thing Trumo has going for us. Congrats, you all gained nothing and Republicans gained nothing. Trump will do what he wants either way.

I honestly can't tell if you're trolling or not. Believe it or not there are legitimate reasons to not like trump. There's more to politics than just economics and tax cuts and while I will admit Trump's economy is good for me that doesn't excuse the way he handles the environment, immigration, education, healthcare, Saudi Arabia, Israel, trans rights ect

So we should go back to how we were handling all of this.....by not handling it. In the past twenty years what president has done anything about immigration? Yes we are a land of immigrants, but for too long people have been immigrating the wrong way.

 

Saudia Arabia? We have been bending over to them since oil was created by God!

 

Isreal? What is he doing differently?

 

Healthcare? Fuck Obama care along with his wars he was ending.

 

Education? My Chicago schooled kids just got laptops, all of them!

 

I agree on the environment.

 

But give me a break on the rest. Not like anyone else has done or is doing anything better or had better ideas they could push.

The left is so anti-Israel it isn't even funny. The whole Iran deal could've resulted in the annihilation of millions.

Damn. We're just gonna have policy gridlock now. Hopefully the 2 parties stop having dick measuring contests and actually compromise on different issues. Not getting my hopes up though.

I'm not anti israel I'm anti human rights abuses. The way I see it Israel shits on human rights just as often as the Islamic regimes that keep threatening to wipe them off the map.

There's no need to post the link if it just repeats what you said without adding any additional content.  I was legitimately curious to see why this would have led to the annhialation of millions, but there's no actual explanation there, just an assertion.  Why do you believe this to be the case?

Then you see it wrong.  I'm not going to claim Israel is perfectly innocent, but look into it and it's not even close.  The number of deaths caused by the Islamic regimes dwarfs those caused by Israel, even adjusted by population.  The state of Israel has never had a death penalty for apostasy, homosexuality, has never engaged in female genital mutilation, has never advocated genocide, has never kept children as sex slaves, has never sentenced a woman to be gang raped, etc etc.  Never used chemical weapons on their enemies, yet alone their own civilians, and so on.  Various regimes in the middle east, and in many cases recognized governments of various Islamic states have done these things.  

Israel has done things they need to be held accountable for.  But that is a completely false equivalency.

When it comes to Saudi Arabia and Israel I will admit these issues go back way before trump but that doesn't change how he has delt with both countries. As for obama care yes it's flawed but it still expanded coverage to people with pre existing conditions which is something the republicans have been trying to repeal constantly. Also just because you local school gave out laptops doesn't change the fact that in a lot of lower class areas they can barely afford text books let alone computers 



So 90% of the media, celebs, athletes, etc ALL imploring the youth to get out and vote (for OUR guys on the left, wink wink), this massive "blue wave", etc.. results in a *slight* Dem majority of the House, probably LOSE seats in the Senate, and minority of Governorships? Sweet..

Eh... if you think a swing of about 30 seats, and likely five or so governorships, is not a big deal, then you probably don't follow politics that closely.  It's kind of a big deal.  People are generally too set in their political parties for any sort of massive change.  Nobody expected Democrats to take like 50 seats cause that just doesn't happen.  Senate losses were expected simply because more democrats were up for reelection.  |

It's not quite the slam dunk that people would have hoped for (democratic people at least) but if you think this result is sweet for republicans, you're deluding yourself.

Yup, nothing will get done for the next 2 years. No fucking wonder China is going to own us in the future, meritocracy FTW I guess.
